Charles "CJ" Yoos and yours truly being
inducted into our hometown alumni hall of fame the end of April.
A bit of background - we were both raised and attended schools in
the small 3,500+ person town of Lisbon OH. CJ was a few high school
graduating classes behind me. I enlisted in the AF immediately after
graduating in 1960, and he entered USAFA immediately after high school.
Add my being turned back to the class of 1968, and we ended up in
the same graduating class from USAFA (The awesome "68 We're
Great" class). As you probably recall, I was the Spring semester
Wing Commander and CJ was the 5th Group Commander. At that time, we
made the local newspapers when our parents were presented with awards
from the local Rotary Club and citizenry which in turn led to CJ and
I being presented with plaques by the Vice Commandant of Cadets in
recognition of our leadership positions. (see photos and news articles
Fast forward to April 2012. CJ and I were honored to be inducted into
the Lisbon Alumni Association Hall of Fame. The alumni association
gives scholarships to local students and has done so for many years.
